Review of "The Iron Wall" 0

I went to Daret Al Fonoon yesterday to watch “The Iron Wall” a documentary about the aprathied wall Israel has been building in Palestine since 2002, a project architected by Ariel Sharon.

The documentary was excellently done, I found the images and stories told heart breaking but a story well told and a message delivered by both sides, mostly by Israelis against the idea of settlement and of course the wall.

The most hearbreaking story told was of a palestinan farmer, where settlers accompanied by soldiers of the IDF were barbarically cutting his olive tries one by one while he was screaming out “my olives”. I get a bad feeling in my stomach whenever i remember that scene that shows utter violence of an occupying power trying it best to break the hearts of its vitims.

I encourage you to watch and promote this documentary http://www.theironwall.ps/ directed by Mohammed Alatar and produced by Palestinian Agriculture Relief Committees and Palestinians for Peace and Democracy.
